Book Review – Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern

Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern

About the Book

She will change your life forever…In the south-west of Ireland, rugged mountains meet bright blue lakes and thick forests. Deep in the woods, a young woman lives alone, forever secluded from the world, her life a well-kept secret. She possesses an extraordinary talent, the likes of which no-one has seen before: a gift that will earn her the nickname Lyrebird.

When Solomon stumbles into Laura’s solitary existence, her life is turned on its head. Pulled from her peaceful landscape to the cacophony of Dublin, she is confronted by a world desperate to understand her.

But while Solomon knows the world will embrace Laura, will it free her to spread her wings – or will it trap her in a gilded cage? Like all wild birds, she needs to fly free…

Lyrebird is a thoughtful, deeply moving love story; a story of the wild heart in us all and the quiet that lies underneath the world’s noise.


When asked to describe this book, most of our readers replied with “magical, whimsical, loved it!”

This was a wonderful read from the start. Beautifully written. Lovely characters. Great story line. The perfect book to curl up with in front of the fire or under a warm blanket on these cold winter nights.

We would recommend this read for those who love a great “chick-lit” or love story. We would rate it 8/10.
